Post your best costume designs here!


Recommended Posts

Having decided on Fire and Dark as powersets the name Ebonblaze presented itself as the logical choice (because no way Darkfire wasn't taken). Combined, the name and powers suggested the colors for the costume--black and orange. 

 

Problem: Black and orange are Halloween colors. (Incidentally the colors of one of my state's universities, something I've long mocked them for, because their original mascot was a tiger.)

 

I seriously considered dropping orange in favor of some other color, but worked at it, trying different approaches and what resulted looks pretty good to me even if the color palette diversity is extremely low. (Hmmm...how crazy can I get with colors?)

Gearshift,  The robotic mascot for a Formula One racing team was created in an attempt to improve his pit crew's performance. A laboratory accident killed the teams driver but transferred his intellect and personality into the robotic body. Obviously inspired by Robotman.

Shut. Up.

 

Please promise me you’re donating your brain to science so we can all somehow understand one day how you think?

 

(...this is so bleeping good, just in case my awe is not coming thru)

So something more like?

try from the black square on the left, go down 2 and over 4 or 5. Its a color right at the edge of orange and brown.

My character would look like this.

Went 3 over. That lowered the contrast between top and bottom enough that I then decided to brighten the other colors thusly:

I think your suggestion was a nice improvement. Thanks!

Decades of giving 0-Flux! (that's his name)

 

I came back after a break and decided to roll a blapper. Here's some era appropriate costumes I made for him. A few of them made my wife groan loudly enough that I decided to share.
